Part BOP Balloon Operations entering into force today April 8th 2019

Part BOP is applicable to ALL balloonists!

Part BOP BAS is for all balloonist the new Operations law and Part BOP ADD is compulsory for all commercial balloonpilots and Operators. The structure of this new handboor for all balloonist is not difficult to understand.

The big issue is that you must adhere to these rules as of today April 8th 2019. If you are a commercial operator you must read Part BOP ADD. You must have an Operations Manual and a Management Manual possibly combined.

Most of what Part BOP explaines you will already have in place we assume. In some EU countries this is compusary and other have made handbooks that are not very different form Part BOP.  

We recommend that every pilot and every Operator reeds the tekst of the two sections and make sure you have your paperwork in order. 

If you have any questions please contact the European Ballooniong Federation (kaa@ballooning-federation.eu )
